Weeknotes 6 November

web dew

I’ve always loved web dew. I have never realised before how pleasing it was to write if only I could make the e in dew backwards. It occurs when we have fog and a frost. It highlights a generally unseen world of spiders. I say generally unseen I’m not sure how many other people feed flies to spiders in the summer.

It’s a strange time of year. I’m a fan of it. I love: misty mornings, colourful sunrises that backlight the mist, the crispiness that the cold brings, the crackle of an open fire (not had one yet), apple crumble and custard coming back on the scene, soon the porridge will start. I’m not such a fan of the early drawing in of the evenings, followed by dark mornings. Still there is lots to enjoy and when the Suns out I can pop my head out and go for a walk.

Project code name alpha

I must confess having had a week out, I’ve completely forgotten if and indeed any code names I was using for projects or if I had thrown all caution to the wind. I’m presuming all caution was thrown to the wind. Preparation for the Reform Champion reform hack continued at pace this week. Though I found a good couple of chats helped me figure out how to redesign the flow, it won't be the last iteration of it and what happens on the day will only partly reflect it but it’s still worth the time to do.

I joined a OneTeamGov breakfast for the first time a while. It was lovely. Though I feel I was a little dominating and took up more airtime than I would normally like to. But I’ve got some great suggestions on how to approach and things to included in the the write up of a blog post for UK Gov Camp on how to run a session.

In other news I’m still at Cabinet Office — I don’t know till when, but I have in my mind moved on. I’m checking myself because endings can cause strange behavior, social guards and checks seem to come down. I can only put it that I feel more relaxed, and this right now is a good thing.

We are prepared for the OneTeamGov sessions at FW50. Please don’t judge me if you watch the video ;)

Clash of Clans

Ok so while I was away my friends son was playing on his tablet. He was playing a game I used to play a lot, clash of clans. He showed me in amongst a minecraft game — yes I got kicked out of the server when he did that but I’m glad he’s got over the need to kill me every second, at least we can build things now. So I’ve reinstalled clash of clans and because of the wonder of the web everything came back — I somehow wasn’t expecting that. Now his Dad is playing :) and there was me thinking I would read more books…
